of is romney presidential in a way that he could lead the u.s. on the world stage? we've seen an ad and a memo out today from the obama campaign trying to paint him as belacose, as not ready, and we expect president obama is going to be doing that tonight here in florida. >> one of the other big issues likely to come up tonight is iran. over the weekend i see your "times" article saying the u.s. and tehran had agreed to one-on-one talks about iran's nuclear program after the election. u.s. will deny that. a lot of people might say what's wrong -- regardless, can the president make the case that his strategy on iran is working or does this give mitt romney an opening? >> you know, the answer may be yes to both of those. obviously president obama would make his case that these are the toughest sanctions ever, and that they have been working. you just look at iran's economy. you look at the value of iran's currency, which has plummeted, and he can say the sanctions are working, but, obviously, governor romney can say they're not really shifting iran to changing its behavior. even if everyone expe
and successful doping program the sport of cycling has ever seen. those are the words of the u.s. anti-doping agency. the usada, about to release 1,000 pages, 1,000 pages of evidence in this long running effort to prove that the cycling great cheated by using performance enhancing drugs. don redell with me, he anchors world sport on cnn international. we have bill stricklin, editor at large, bicycling magazine. bill, i want to begin with you. because i want you to explain to me in terms of specifics, if -- i read the statement from the usada ceo pointing to undeniable proof of this doping conspiracy. what kind of evidence is there? >> we know there is testimony from -- riders. they released the names of 11 of those. one of those is george hamby, the long time -- the most loyal -- and george earlier today had a -- announcement, basically confirming he gave testimony -- >> bill, forgive me. bill, forgive me. we have to pull away. i'm hearing every third word of yours. so let's work on your audio. and, don, let's go to you. if you can fill in the blanks, he started mentioning the 11 rider
think he's speaking directly to the report now that the u.s. and the libyans -- rather the u.s. and the iranians are trying to get together and try to have some kind of unilateral talks about what to do with their nuclear program. >> it's one of the sections that have been divided in six. let me direct you back to libya because that was such a hot button topic and it got talking points for a full week afterwards. do we expect the governor will seize on the opportunity to sort of change the conversation about that particular topic and try to get to the heart of the question that was asked, which is who denied security as opposed to arguing over when the words terror were uttered? >> reporter: you know, i think the romney campaign will acknowledge that. in fact, that wasn't a great moment for mitt romney in the last debate. i think he will use it as a jumping off point to talk about in the broader spectrum about the u.s. and how it's viewed globally and how terror right now is changing right now in the middle east. as you said, one of the discussions that will be talked about ton
, if you will, in iran, a couple of years ago, when there were protests. people were angry and the u.s. was on the sidelines, the president did not directly speak out and the explanation that the administration at the time gave was that the opposition didn't want this to appear to be the opposition to the ayatollahs, standing up in iran, with the backing of united states. that could have been counterproductive. as a result, the obama administration was pretty silent. at the time now where romney is going after him on that, i think there were a few areas where there were some significant differences, but on the whole, after you get through some of the angry rhetoric, there is a lot of agreement between obama and romney, one area of disagreement on arming the syrian rebels. another area of disagreement, how far will iran be able to go in its nuclear weapons capability, the capability of developing a bomb as opposed to actually having a bomb. and the third was on russia. he twice in a speech singled out vladimir putin as a basically a foe of the united states and he was doubling down on t
, we know he was referring to a lot of the protests around in the region, and even the killing of the u.s. ambassador in benghazi, libya, but when you listen to what he is saying here, how much of it do you think is about a failed strategy or what is simply out of the white house's controlt this point, what is going on in the middle east? >> well, a lot of it is clearly out of the white house's control what's happening in the middle east. it doesn't make any difference what the strategy would have been. there are internal developments in north africa and in the middle east that are happening right now, and irrespective of what the u.s. and others can do, those developments are going to go forward for good or for bad. >> his articulation for a continued internationalist role for the united states, because including some of the conservative movements, some republicans who want to have more of an isolationist, a retreat, if you will, from an international involvement, go back to the u.s. borders, stay away from so many issues around the world, cut back on u.s. foreign aid, for example. you h

with karzai. karzai wants the u.s. to send weapons and planes to the air force, but leon panetta told them karzai should not be complaining. >> we have lost over 2,000 u.s. men and women. we have lost forces there, and the afghans have lost a large number of their forces in battle. those lives were lost fighting the right enemy, not the wrong enemy. and i think it would be helpful if the president every once in a while expressed his thanks for the sacrifices that have been made by those who have fought and died for afghanistan. rather than criticizing them. >> let's talk a little politics now, you can score one for the obama campaign in ohio. at least every ohio voter can now vote the weekend before the election. the federal judge sided with president obama's campaign and overturned a restriction on early voting that the state republicans had put in place. it would have limited the weekend voting to u.s. military families and people living overseas. >>> and a cap on what many are calling a dismal debate this week. more on the campaign rally. >> reporter: this is the president that most peo

secretary of state hillary clinton is saying about the attack on the u.s. consulate in benghazi, libya, the september 11 attack left four americans dead, including the u.s. ambassador. cnn foreign affairs reporter broke the story with an exclusive interview during the secretary's trip to peru. >> i take responsibility. i'm in charge of the state department, 60,000 plus people all over the world, 275 post, the president and the vice president certainly wouldn't be knowledgeable about specific decisions that are made by security professionals. in the wake of an attack like this, in the fog of war, there's always going to be confusion, and i think it is absolutely fair to say that everyone had the same intelligence. everyone who -- >> bad intelligence, it seems. >> everyone who spoke tried to give the information as they had. as time has gone on, the information has changed. we've gotten more detail. but that's not surprising. that always happens. and what i want to avoid is some kind of political got ya or blame game going on. >> and we have just got word into the president on this as we
fiery exchanges was not about foreign policy but rather something decidedly american, the u.s. auto industry. >> if we had taken your advice about the auto industry, we would be buying car from china instead of selling cars to china. >> i am a son of detroit. i was born in detroit. my dad was head of a car company. i like american cars. i would do nothing to hurt the u.s. auto industry. i said the companies need to go through a managed bankruptcy. fortunately the president -- >> that's not what you said. >> you can take a look at the op-ed. >> you did not say that you would provide help. >> i said we would provide guarantees and that was what was able to allow the companies to go through bankruptcy and come out of bankruptcy. >> check the record. >> that's the height of silliness. >> let me bring dana bash in live from boca. this was supposed to be a foreign policy debate and seemed to frequently stray back to domestic policy and we think that was part of the plan. >> you would be right. especially for mitt romney who thinks that that is really his wheelhouse in terms of his own exp
jim acosta in reno, nevada. i want to follow up on some controversy involving a u.s. senate candidate who romney has endorsed. richard mourdock of indiana, making a statement that pregnancy from rape is, quote, god's intent. to what extent is the romney campaign trying to distance itself from mourdock? >> reporter: well, fredricka, as you mentioned, mitt romney did tape an endorsement spot for richard mourdock that republican candidate in indiana for the u.s. senate there. he made those comments about abortion and rape and made some comments about why he believes abortion should be outlawed. and in the case of rape. and he had to go back and explain those comments in that news conference earlier on this morning. but the romney campaign is trying to distance itself somewhat from richard mourdock, how to say, there is a statement i can read you from andrea saw, a campaign spokeswoman, she says governor romney disagrees with richard mourdock and mr. mourdock's comments do not reflect governor romney's views. we disagree on the policy regarding exceptions for rape and incest, but still su

a couple of those talking points, what they may face. let's start with syria. what should the u.s. do about syria? if we don't do anything, al qaeda is already there sowing the seeds of their influence. do we intervene, do we stay on the sidelines? romney won't say what he would do if he put boots on the ground, but he continues to say the president has done too little. >> obama's argument, if, in fact, it comes up, we're coming off two wars in american history where the standard question is not when will we win, but when can we leave? romney is going to challenge him and he's going to say, and the great strength and weakness of the romney foreign agenda is he's got to counteract the presidency. we don't know what mitt romney will do or not, so he can basically say to the president, look, you need to arm me the rebels. you need to seriously consider a no fly zone, but there is a trap there for the governor because that takes america down a road away from the reality that the domestic economy is going to be the key issue. so that's one. israel is another key issue, and here i think the romne

the storms continue to move into the atlantic and die. some go to the u.s. or halifax, as far south as norfolk, virginia. the model -- i think now we know this is going to turn into the u.s. this is going to turn to a much bigger storm for monday and tuesday somewhere. maybe even wednesday if it's that far into halifax. longtory get there, obviously. an 85-mile-per-hour storm into new york city would be more deadly, would be more dangerous than even irene from last year. it turned out to be a huge flood problem for virginia, vermont and new jersey. i know it's late in the season, but the water is still warm enough to make this storm generate. it went -- i was watch it last night in bed on my -- i was tweeting from 8:00 until 12:00, and this thing went from an 80-mile-per-hour storm to about a 115 as it left jamaica and slammed into cuba, and that was only in five hours. there's a lot of potential. >> is it true that a late storm as well could be a lot deadlier, a lot more dangerous late in the season? >> i would say an earlier storm, october 10th, that peak day with the waters the w
are creating jobs. we're adding jobs to the u.s. economic landscape. the unemployment rate measures something different. that's a set of phone calls that go to people's houses to find out whether they're employed, whether they work at home, whether they're self-employed. it's a less reliable number because it shifts and measures different things on an ongoing basis. the number of jobs created minus jobs loss is an absolute number over time. if you look back, we were losing on average about 750,000 jobs a month. it started to get better through 2009, 2010, we saw a census bump that created jobs in the beginning of the year. then we saw a drop off. from the middle of 2010 onward, we have been creating jobs. the most important thing, though, out of today's numbers is not the drop in the unemployment, this weekend's numbers is not the drop in the unemployment rate. it's the addition of jobs in the previous two months. july and august, we added 86,000 more jobs than we thought we had. that is typical to see the numbers revived, so bottom line as you walk away from the jobs report, it's okay. it's
administration has had and the reason why the u.s. has not sought to arm the rebels is because some of those rebels may be totally opposed to the united states, maybe closer to al qaeda, for example, than to the united states, so once you start arming rebels in a major way, you're not sure where those weapons are going to wind up, and that's been the big concern of the obama administration right now. how do you make sure that the weapons you provide rebels are really going to the good guys as it were as opposed to the potential bad guys and that's not an easy question to answer. >> never. in fact, we have countless examples where this has gone awry. hold the thought for a moment. if you could stand by, i have a lot more questions i need to ask you. in the meantime as the news continues to break, i want to check in now on mitt romney who spent the weekend campaigning in florida before heading to virginia. that's where today's live event is about to take place and our national political correspondent jim acosta is live on the campaign trail. he is live in lexington, virginia, where the foreign

to be this report from "the new york times" about how the u.s. has been in discussions about having one-on-one meetings with iran right after the elections. now, the administration has said that that, in fact, is not true. that there is no agreement. mitt romney was asked about it and he chose not to address the question. but one of his surrogates, lindsay graham, was on the talk shows this morning and he talked about it. >> well, i think the iranians are taking advantage of our election cycle to continue to talk. they continue to enrich. >> reporter: it won't just be about iran. it's going to be about afghanistan and pakistan. it's going to be about the new middle east and the new threat of terror from that region and china, the looming giant, of course, across the sea, across the ocean that the united states has to pay close attention to. >> mark, thank you very much. cnn is your choice for the third and final presidential debate. our live coverage begins monday night at 7:00 p.m. eastern. >>> chaos in the streets of lebanon. we'll tell you why protesters clashed with security forces.
